St George’s Hospital Charity has two main activities: fundraising and grant-giving. By raising money, the Charity is able to fund projects which touch the lives of the thousands of people cared for by the Hospital and local community services each year. In the past year, the Charity has provided grants for the following projects:
- £82,000 to relocate and refurbish the bereavement services department to the heart of the Hospital
- £500,000 for the relocation and refurbishment of the Simultation Centre, including £150,000 for a high-fidelity mannequin
- £200,000 to relocate the chest clinic into Lanesborough Wing outpatients from its current location on the perimeter road
- £100,000 towards completing the replacement of all bedside curtains
- £10,000 to the learning disability service over 2 years to support the pioneering work of the service to improve the hospital experience of people with learning disabilities and their carers.
- £65,000 for the palliative care team to purchase syringe drivers. These are used by terminally ill patients to manage their pain relief at home, at the end of their lives. This funding has enabled St George’s to deliver the standard of care that gives patients choice, supports dignity and makes a significant difference to individuals.
